Video Practice Points
  • Holding wrists and forearms tight does not maintain lag - keep wrists soft to allow the weight of the club head to pull back naturally
  • Drill: Weight your club and make tiny one-handed swings, feeling the flow & staying very loose
  • Add in some weight shift with each swing, keeping weight over the ankles
  • Remove the weight & swing again, keeping the wrist flat in the backswing
  • Make longer (9 to 3) swings, one hand at a time, focusing on keeping the wrist supple
  • With right hand, the club should be vertical when it is in front of the left leg
  • With left hand, the club should still be parallel to the ground when the hand is at the right thigh
  • Don't turn your body - the chest should still point at the ball
  • Use both hands for full 9 to 3 Drill, keeping left wrist flat & extending right arm as in Throw the Ball Drill

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

-Dr. Jeffrey Broker, Assoc. Prof. in Biomechanics at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Former Senior Biomechanist for U.S. Olympics Committee

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
